On 29th April Traveltime was fortunate to secure seats on the Ceres Rail vintage steam train to the newly established Elgin Railway Market. What a great trip this was! See our report & Photos
The April week-end trips (yes there were 2) were a first for Elgin, to celebrate the opening of this unique market, at the same time as the Elgin Cool Wine & Country Food Festival. After the Festival the market was closed to the public to complete work within the building.
The market will re-open in June, after adding finishing touches and installing additional clients and more eateries. These trips will now become a fixture in the Ceres Rail calendar.
Upcoming day trips are scheduled on the above dates.
So, join this “blast from the past” by enjoying a relaxed train trip through breathtaking Cape scenery and experience the modern Railway Market for a few hours in Elgin.
Departing at 08h00 from Unity Station, opposite the Royal Cape Yacht Club in Cape Town, you will enjoy a 3 hour train journey to Elgin where you will leisurely spend 3.5 hours at the newly established, Art Deco & Art Nouveau inspired, Elgin Railway Market.
While enjoying live music, you can pander through the selection of tantalising food and beverage stalls as well as a wide selection of home grown wines for your enjoyment.
Departing from Elgin on the same day at 14:30 you will embark on your relaxing train journey back to Cape Town with your estimated arrival time being 17h30.
